JENELLE Evans, who is now 29, is a television personality who starred on MTV’s Teen Mom 2.
She recently complained about her pay for the reality show.
What is Jenelle Evans’ net worth?
Evans’ net worth is believed to be around $500,000.
She was making about $300,000 per year on Teen Mom 2 before she was booted from the show in 2019, according to Cheat Sheet.
Evans recently said she was “surprised” she was fired after her husband David Eason killed their family dog Nugget.
Jenelle appeared on the popular podcast This Family Tree hosted by parents Shane and Alexandra Cunningham.
“To me, it was kind of weird that they would let me go for [David killing the dog],” she said.
“It caught me by surprise because they filmed me on drugs. They filmed me, no lie, nodding out on-camera. They filmed me going to buy marijuana and my director knew I had it in my car.

“There was so much illegal stuff that they filmed. And this wasn’t even part of filming. They weren’t even there and had nothing to do with it. But they still let me go.”
David had justified the killing of Nugget, claiming the dog nipped at their daughter, Ensley.
It is believed that Jenelle has other income streams, including Instagram, plus videos for fans made on the messaging service Cameo.
Jenelle had also appeared on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant during her decade-long run at the network.

What did Jenelle Evans say about her Teen Mom salary?
Evans complained about her pay for the hit MTV series – admitting she believes she should have been compensated the same as the Jersey Shore cast.
The reality star said she and her co-stars were not earning as much as fellow MTV favorites such as Snooki, The Situation, and Pauly D.
She added that when they asked for a raise, the number would never rise higher than 5 percent of their current salary.
Is she the ‘most hated person on the internet’?
Evans said she’s “the most hated person on the internet” in a series of Instagram Story videos posted in December of 2020.
The comment comes as The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported that The Family Tree podcast deleted Jenelle’s recent episode.

She slammed the podcast for deleting the episode and not telling her about it.
Jenelle began in the first clip: “I wanna thank the Ashley’s Reality Roundup because, actually, you guys just kept me informed. I didn’t even know that podcast episode was taken down.
“No one notified me. No one explained why, but they’ll go to the media and explain why.”
After sarcastically adding that she was “looking for attention,” Jenelle continued: “I went on your podcast as a favor for you guys. Not for myself. I didn’t need any of this attention. I didn’t need any of this publicity.
“Not to mention I scheduled it in advance, made sure my kids were nice and taken care of and poured my heart out to you for 45 minutes. And you just threw all that away?”

She then addressed her fans, stating: “So keep an eye out on my Instagram because I will be explaining all this and more on three other podcasts that I actually have scheduled for next month.”
The former MTV star continued: “It’s really hard for me to trust anyone. Anyone in the industry. Anyone from the media and for me to open up and do this podcast for you.
“After being on TV for so long, you try to break out of this shell that you were in and you try to open up and trust people and do interviews and be on a podcast and now I’m back to where I can’t trust anyone.
“So when you’re like one of the most hated people on the internet like me, what do you do in a situation like this? You use your platform to speak your mind and you use your platform to explain your story.”
